Kit Campbell class of '62. As I get older I get flashbacks about the good
times. When visiting here I recalled great stories -- like Penny Money
telling me her mother was pregnant for 16 months (with brother Nickel??)
it is so funny she married German money Kugerran (or something like that
What about Charlie Dunlap, Kent Cloter (sp?), Chris Siderelis (a Prof.
NCU), Steve Wright, Dave & Sam Cowan, Kim Udall and so may others??
My mother still gives me pictures of the western movie the class made
has the original -- would that ever make a hit at the next reunion.
The last time I have seen these guys was at the 20th. I saw Susan John
that and she got me some floor and a coffee mug that I still use today.
Suzie Pearce -- weren't you married with 5 kids?
Dick Whisenhunt - don't I remember you setting the school record in sit-ups?
Jim Urie I remember you but tonight I can't picture your face. HI.
Lets see -- what am I doing these days? As a real estate developer I had
shirt taken during the Texas Real Estate Massacre. I worked for five more
years and then bought a 42' sail boat and went sailing for three years.
remarried a wonderful lady named Susan and we have a wonderful life. We
in Texas (today Terrell -- tomorrow ??)
I now have 7 grand children and bought an RV so I could visit all of them.
ANY of my friends out there - e-mail me and I will call you just to touch
base and we can tell each other stories!

The older I get the more old friends and old friendships are cherished.
Would sure like to hear from some of them. A lot of water has gone under my bridge
since 1962, and I find myself reminiscing a little too much the actual truth---I am really
fortunate to have been part of Harry Luge's "Rat Pack". Saw Bub Weeks name
on the list the other day---Sure would be great to see him and Bev again. Since I
ran around with a lot of Coronadoians also I would like to hear from anyone that knew me
then, and would REALLLLLLY like to hear from anyone from that "Rat Pack" era
also. Soooo, let's get some more '62 names on this list!

There are a couple of old friends that I would like to get in touch with. If anyone knows

Thanks to Linda Helser, I received the info for the Beaver Bash 2000! She and I have kept
in contact all these years! A note to Kit Campbell...It was me that kissed the horse
before you rode off into the sunset in our little "western movie" directed by
Charlie Dunlap!!! Surely someone ought to be able to locate that historic piece of
film...Now to what I have been doing since ' 62...Went to ASU for two years, took off to
see the world and ended up in Salt Lake City for two years then interviewed with American
Airlines and ended up in Dallas, Texas. Married and had 2 beautiful daughters, divorced
and remained a single Mom for seven years. Met my present husband, Dan, who many of you
met at our last reunion. (He auctioned off the bricks, flooring and basketball hoop, etc.
from our alma mater) We raised our combined 5 children, raised race horses, owned a car
dealership and a specialty advertising company and were active in the Lewisville Chamber
of Commerce (I even volunteered enough that I was Woman of the Year!), the auto dealers
association, the national horse racing association. Working with all of these allowed us
to travel and meet many of our friends over the years. Somehow, life took a turn when my
father-in-law had a stroke..we are now in Gun Barrel City, Texas (only 30 miles from
Terrell, Kit!) on Cedar Creek Lake. We have a marina, r.v. park and 30 acres for our
horses and grandkids!!! It took us a year or two to slow down to the pace, but we are
really enjoying our new life. Come see us!! Plan to be at the reunion in October! Our
Marina is Sandy Shores Marina, 141 Big Chief Drive, Gun Barrel City, Texas 75143

Brian Hanrahan here. I was talking to another 62'er the other day about this
site and decided to register.
I'll try not to bore you, but I've been in public education in Phoenix for
thirty years and the end is not in sight. We 60's Beavers are forever kids,
right? I still talk to John (Jack, in pre-Hollywood years) Roselius, who has
appeared in such movies as Con Air, Dennis Skarecky, an attorney in Phoenix,
Dick Whisenhunt ,who communes with nature in Cottonwood, and Bud Weekes, who
is gray-haired and retired.
I have bricks from the demolition of SHS. I have pieces of the gym floor and
about sixty pictures of the school in various stages of destruction. What I
don't have is clear recollection of my senior year, having spent much of it
in Mr. Planeta's office or waterskiing on the canal, where today McCormick
Ranch homes glisten like jewels in the desert.
I'd love to hear from Beavers from any graduating class. Please remember
though, if I ruined your desert lawn with my '47 Ford in 1961, or if I
knocked over the lightpost in front of your house with my '55 Chevy, the
statute of limitations has expired.

1942, and my sister, Joyce Elaine (Hildebrand) Graczyk, graduated in 1965, and although
neither of my two children (Lori & Jim Nisbet) were graduates, they both did attend
classes at SHS prior to the school closing....As I understand, we are one of only two
families with three generations at SHS, the other being that of the Lester Mowrey
family.......Learned of this at one of the Scottsdale Old Timers reunions, and yes we are
now the generation of "Old Timers"....I was one of just a handful of students
that went all through elementary school at Loloma, and then through SHS, for all twelve
years together (13 if you count kindergarten)...Married Jim Nisbet (1962 Brophy grad)
while going to ASU, had two beautiful children, Lori now 36, and Jim now
33.....Unfortunately my son was diagnosed with a terminal illness in June of 1997, and I
now stay home taking care of him......We still live in Scottsdale, where our
"roots" are, and wouldn't have it any other way......Have heard from several
classmates recently, and am looking forward to seeing many of them at the upcoming reunion
events.....Thanks to all who worked putting this site, and reunion events, together, GOOD
JOB!!!!! Feel free to contact me at this e-mail address (it's my son's) anytime.......

For some unknown reason I did a web search for Scottsdale High School and found your amazing web site! I am a member of the class of 1962, known to my classmates as Kay King. After graduation I attended ASU and then NAU until 1966 when I moved to Hawaii. I married my husband (a Judson alum, can't believe I even dated someone from Judson!) in 1964. We are still married, still live in Hawaii and are the parents of three sons and have eight grandchildren. I loved reading everyone's postings, brought back oh so many memories including Mr. Barcala's Spanish class, tubing on the Verde and the description of Scottsdale town "back in the day." I last came back to Scottsdale in 1995 and was shocked at all the changes. I am the director of Campus Ministry and teach courses in ethics at Chaminade University in Honolulu. I think my Scottsdale High teachers would be shocked to know that I did indeed continue my education to include a BS degree in education and two master's degrees. But I agree with the posting about still being basically the same person we were in high school! I've missed every reunion so far but if we are having a 50th (good heavens, we can't be almost old enough for that can we?) I will try hard to be there! Kay (King) Stone

My friends are tired of my telling them that my old High School is now
a road! The closest thing I've acquired linking me to my Arizona school
history is a picture of Loloma Elementary with a "For Sale"
sign in front, although we did make one visit to the windows in front
of the gym on a trip "home" just before everything vanished.
Actually, the last three years we have visited in February....as the Northern
California contingent of the President's Day Soccer Tournament. This year
(2000) may be our last, as my youngest son will graduate this spring.
(U18 boys..River City United Rush, Sacramento, CA) It's really eerie looking
across the street where the school "should " be and seeing nothing!
Since my family moved to Colorado mid-62, I've had very little news of
SHS friends, although I've run into a few......but not recently. I'd love
to have news of any reunions, or of old friends. Please add my name to
your '62 graduate list.
Just yesterday I learned of Brian Schweikhardt's passing. Brian had a
massive heart attack, January 7, 2003, in his car, outside the school
in East Sacramento where he was teaching music. There was quite an article
in the Sacramento BEE about Brian and his musical career. Brian and I
were "in touch" in 1989 after I was sitting in the dentist's
office trying to catch up on my reading and saw the latest issue of Sacramento
Magazine with Brian on the cover. He had recently relocated to Sacramento
from Cleveland, as the principal clarinetist of the Sacramento Symphony,
and really took the Capitol by storm! I looked him up and we got together
several times. What a bright and clever person he was, as well as warm
and caring! I have to smile every time I think of his theory that we are
all still just "who we were" in high school.........as he said
to me: "once a cheerleader, always a cheerleader." Not really
a self-assessment I would choose. Though I like to think that I have changed,
I can see his point. I don't know if he saw himself as he had been in
high school. I thought he had really changed. The Symphony here failed
in 1996, and Brian had to start all over with more parts of his life than
those he remade when he came to Sacramento. He was reborn as a teacher...the
kind we all remember as being so special during our years at Scottsdale....not
unlike his father. As I read the article in the paper yesterday of the
ceremony by his middle school students to honor his life, I was struck
with the fact that some things seem to go full-circle. Brian gave to his
last career all those principals we were all brought up with during our
years at SHS. And those are not common principals to find in our public
schools ( or in public life) too much any more....at least in California.
I am stunned and saddened by his passing, even though we hadn't seen each
other in a while. I do believe we all have "bonds that tie us"
because of the times we shared and I hope this forum created here to bring
old friends together continues to allow us to reconnect. I do wish you
all the very best in the new year.

Great to see so many old names and stories on the registration pages. My
family and I are living in St. Louis, Missouri, and have been for the
past 25 years. My wife Marianne (a Washington High School, Ram) and I
have three children and two grandchildren.
Still haven't grown up, but plan to do that when I get a little older.
Love messing around with fast vehicles. Own a Top Fuel Hydroplane drag
boat and travel nationally racing it. Had a rather spectacular crash
last summer in Marble Falls, Texas at 235 M.P.H. Spent a few days in
the hospital, but am fine now.
We have a business in St. Louis, and will probably be here for the
foreseeable future, but come to Arizona often to see relatives and
friends, plus race at Firebird in the Fall. Definitely plan to come to
Often think about those trips to the Verde River with Harry Luge and the
guys plus dates. We never made it without at least one blow out. We
would get tires from behind service stations that were being thrown out,
and then would be indignant when we had a flat. Also you never sat next
to a door because they were always flying open-1930 something chevy-
luckily we never lost anybody.
And how about the time we were traveling at a high rate of speed in
Dickie Whisenhunt's dads new pick up truck, with Harry and his date in
the bed. The truck rolled on the way to Cavalliere's ranch near
pennacle peak. It pitched Harry and the girl (who shall remain nameless)
out and they landed on the dirt road.... they were not dressed for the
occasion. Nobody was hurt, a minor miracle, but truck was a mess.
Driving it back to Scottsdale hunched down in the seat to see out where
the windshield used to be and telling Dickie's dad about his new truck
was not a pleasant experience. Enough for now we can tell the really
good stories at the reunion. See you soon!

This is a great site! Please add my information. I hope this is the right place to
register to get my information into the site with the other graduates of SHS. At SHS was
known as Lora L. Sapp (now Sorrells). I enjoyed reading about everyone and their current
life. I wasn't sure if this was the place to register for the site or to register for the
reunion in October, which hopefully, I can make.
After graduation in 1962, I attended Arizona State University for four years and graduated
in 1966. During my junior year of college, I sent 30 Christmas cards to Mail Call Vietnam
and corresponded with 15 servicemen, one of whom I married, Ronald J. Barton, in January
We moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado and lived there until 1972. Ron was a forester for
the Colorado State Forest Service out of Ft. Collins, and I was the secretary @ the Bank
of Glenwood (sooner to be called the Colorado National Bank). In 1972, we moved to Gould,
Colorado, about 26 miles from Walden, Colorado and 75 miles from Steamboat Springs. We
lived in a cabin four miles from a person, and the road closed @ our house during the
Winter. We used to 'bugle' elk in the Fall--right behind our house. Used to snowmobile in
the Winter. We did not have any TV reception, so we used to get together with the couple
from the Trading Post about 4 miles down the road to play Mexican Canasta. Ron died of a
heart attack in September of 1973 and I had to leave Colorado since we lived in the
Headquarters for the State Forest Service.
I moved to Dallas, Texas in October of 1973 with my Siberian Husky and Siamese cat. I was
a widow for two years and worked @ the RepublicBank Dallas as an Administrative Assistant
for the Manager of the Trust Investment Department and then married William C. Sorrells in
September 1975. We were married for 19 years and had two children: Bryan, a l999 graduate
of Northwestern University (age 23) and David, an 8th grader (age 14). I also have a
stepson Stace (age 30). I attended the 30-year reunion with Bill in 1992, and saw Bea
Libby (Anderson), Darla Jo Love (Sharpe), Dave Cowan, Susie Pearce, Harry Luge, and a few
I have been divorced for 5 years and have worked @ Ericsson Inc. for 10 years in
Richardson, Texas. I currently live in Garland, Texas, a little town just outside of
Dallas. Love to go to movies, work in the flower garden, and go on trips.
Have always felt apart of Scottsdale since my parents lived there since 1956. My Dad
passed away in 1995 and my Mom passed away last year and we had to sell the house on 68th
Place last June. My sister, Lana (a graduate of SHS in 1960) also lives in Garland,
Texas--about a mile from me. My sister Lisa (a graduate of SHS in 1972) lives in Mesa. My
brother, Gary Sapp (a graduate of SHS in 1970) lives in Loveland, Colorado.
I look forward to hearing from any of you who graduated in 1962 (or any other year).

Thanks for the great website. I attended the reunion and, though
overwhelmed by the huge number of people, saw friends with whom I hadn't
connected for many years.
Reading through the website has been nearly as good as going to Rawhide!
It will be great to be in touch with some old friends who are also looking
back...surprised that it's been so long yet seems so recent!
I am Judith Marx (Judy Snyder, then) and live in San Juan Bautista,
California. Did two years at ASU then put my first husband through a
Masters and Ph.D. Took me fifteen years to get back to college and every
September, I get the urge again. Have spent considerable time here in
Phoenix during the last year with my Father. I spent about 18 years
singing professionally, then into work on-air in radio and TV and then
Worked with an exclusively automotive ad agency and did the
verboten...married a client...Harry Marx, the Chevrolet/Cadillac/Olds
dealer in Gilroy, CA. I worked in the dealership for eight years, until
coming here to Phoenix a year ago September. Now I divide my time between
the two homes.
I have one son, Nels, 24, who lives in LA. He's been working as an Oracle
DBA. My own computer knowlege is limited but a great way to stay in touch
with friends all over the place. I enjoy reading, as always, and spend
considerable time indulging my love of photography. Most of all, I am fond
of travel and shooting pictures wherever we are.
Again, thanks for the marvelous way to remember and share our high school
memories on this website. Our years at SHS were quite idyllic. Mr.
Barcala's Spanish class, Mr. Schweikart's journalism extravaganza...doing
musicals, even during the Summer Theater Arts Workshop and communing with
nature at Encanto Park in the cool (?) of the evening! Burgers at Bob's on
Central and trips to the Sugar Bowl and the Fifth Avenue Shops...the
perfumed fountain of Erne Wittels and the Paolo Soleri Bell Tree...the
Scandinavian Shop. Scottsdale always felt like home until I came home one
day and found that Scottsdale Road didn't go straight through town anymore!
Goldwater's is gone and Fashion Square has changed more than somewhat.
First time that I ever felt that the "old days" were better! Perhaps being
in the second half of my 50's is responsible...and having lived in Arizona
since 1956 gives an added perspective, too.
Salutations to all my farflung Beaver siblings.

Dear Fellow SHS Alumni,
Great to be able to get back in touch with SHS, even though the buidings
disappeared years ago. I guess, like some of you, I've reached an age
where looking back is important.
After SHS I attended Wabash College in Crawfordsville, IN and earned a
BA in economics in 1966. Met my wife Peggy in the summer between my
junior and senior year and we were married in July 1966. I entered the
US Army in November 1966 as a private and retired in July 1994 as a full
colonel. We raised two children and now each of them is married and
have a daughter, our two grand children. I was in Vietnam 1969-70 with
the 25th Infantry Division at Cu Chi and in 1990-91 I was in the Gulf
War with the XVIII Airborne Corps. Specifically, I commanded a
battalion providing support to the 24th Mechanized Division in Saudi
Arabia and Iraq. While in the Army I earned an MBA at Michigan State
University and graduated from the Army's Command and General Staff
College and the Army War College. Following my retirement from the Army
I earned a Master of Public Administration at Indiana University. I
became the Director of Alumni Affairs at Wabash College in 1995 and will
retire from this postion October 2000. We plan to stay right here in
I can't make it to the All Classes Reunion this year, but I hope to
attend a future reunion. My parents and brother live in Scottsdale and
Tempe. Please keep me informed about future reunions.
Stan Walker Update
I was pleased to see the website up and running again. I noted that many
of my classmates from 1962 had not updated their information for a few
years and therefore I will update mine in hopes that others will do the
I tried retiring again in 2000 after five years and the Director of Alumni
Affairs at my alma mater Wabash College here in Crawfordsville, IN. Before
I was able to even leave the job I was recruited to be the Executive Director
of our local United Fund. It looks like a United Way, but we are not a
member of United Way. We raise over a half a million dollars a year to
fund the good work of about 19 not-for-profit agencies in our county. It
is a part-time job, 1000 hours in the year and I get to choose the hours.
I plan on doing this for a few more years.
My wife, Peggy, and I will be traveling to Phnom Penh, Cambodia in December
to spend a month with my daughter and her family. They are missionaries
there with the Christian Missionary Alliance. Karyn and her husband Jeff
have two daughters which is the only reason I plan to spend Christmas overseas.
Peggy and I spent 28 years in the Army celebrating Christmas away from
family and we really thought that in the future we’d celebrate Christmas
You have my correct address, but my email addresses have changed. At home
my email address is email@example.com and at work it is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ love to hear from a classmate or two.
Are their any plans for a 45 year reunion by the Class of 1962 in 2007?

I;m a long ways from home - that's for sure. Although my parents still

about the past 5 years. I have my own company which specializes in
Russian stocks. www.dover-capital.com
I do visit Arizona from time to time - my fondest memories are from

It is raining today (what a nice change) and I have been entertaining myself reading all
the notes from fellow SHS graduates. JoAnn Willmeng and Mary Fitzpatrick put me on to the
site - thanks!
Life is still good here in Scottsdale. I am married with one grown son. My sister and
brother both live here, Mary Jo was the class of '60 and Dee was the class of '67 at
Sahuaro. I have been flying all these years but recently came back down to earth long
enouch to get back into horseback riding - having a ball. I think being in your 50s is
like being on vacation- children grown and work is part time.
Hope to see lots of familiar faces at the reunion.

HI! I am Roy Wise alumni of the Class of 1962, I recognize
many of the other 1962 grad's. After graduation I postponed
college for a tour in the Air Force 1962-1966, one year in
Texas and 3 years in Wyoming, so I did not get to see the
world that way. Married in 1967 and divorced in 1971.
Active in the Phoenix Jaycees in 1970-1974, I have worked at
Mountain States Telephone & Telegraph/ Mountain Bell / U S
West for 31 years. Married to a 1969 Grad Joyce (Brown)
Wise from 1975 to 1991 when she passed away from cancer. I
see one of her friends Bev McDowell registered earlier in
the 60's section. Have lived in Scottsdale/Phoenix all but
the time in the service. I would like to hear from other 62
grads. Learned about the site from another Beaver at work.
The All Class Reunion sounds like fun.
Thanks Bill for putting the site together.
